My Sketchbook #4

My brother has been bugging me to draw a tattoo for him. He wants our parents Family Shields. One of the shields has a boar on it and the other has a deer. I had drawn everything awhile ago and did not like the way the animals came out. I want to play with different looks for the animals. I think I still need to play with this one, but this is definitely a start.


My Sketchbook #3

My Raven Kitty! Looking at my sketches I really need to concentrate on my proportions!


Green Earth Book Series

This is a book series that I designed at work! I enjoyed learning about the different ways to be Green in your everyday life. It's amazing what you learn from children's books.



Magazine Ad #1

This is an Advertising Piece that I did, that went into the District Administration Magazine.


My Sketchbook #1

I drew these hummingbirds while visiting with my Mom at the Rehab facility she is in. I am actually thinking about getting a tattoo of a hummingbird for my Mom. These were some ideas of position I had.

I finally figured out how I am going to handle posting artwork. I decided I needed to make a schedule to keep myself on track. This is the plan, I am going to post something out of My Sketchbook every Tuesday of the week. On Thursday I am going to post some of my Graphic Arts. If I end up doing any other kind of art I will post as I finish them.

Hope you enjoy!

Board Book Design

One part of this blog is that I want to share some of my Graphics work from my 9 to 5 job. I work for a Children's Nonfiction Book Publisher and I design and layout books, catalogs, and advertising for the company. I have been working with them for 5 1/2 years now and really enjoy what I do. Here are some Covers and a couple interiors for a series of Board Books that I designed last year.
